News: Third Season Opening Confirmed, JAM Project to Leave Cardfight?

A recent tweet from Bushiroad CEO Kidani Takaaki has revealed that the third season of Cardfight!! Vanguard will be having Japanese rock band Psychic Lover perform the opening theme. This will be the first opening not performed by JAM Project, and the change in musical artists is speculated to be a result of the poor reception of OP03 "Limit Break" compared to the series' first two openings, and/or because of JAM Project currently being preoccupied by the upcoming release of their 51st single, "The Wings of Legend."

Although primarily known for their work done for live action Super Sentai shows, like JAM Project before them Psychic Lover is also associated with the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, through the fourth ending theme to Yu-Gi-Oh! GX "Precious Time, Glory Days" and to the Super Robot Wars line of video games through the music they did for 2005 mecha anime Gaiking: Legend of Daiku-Maryu.
